Few possibilities. Cleaner may loosen up some dirt and clogged injector or pump, clogged fuel tank vent

Still need the codes.
Injectors can go "bad" in a couple of different ways; all they are is an electromagneticaly controlled nozzle. When the ECU "fires" the injector, it pulses a ground circuit for 4-8 milliseconds, the electromagnet powers up, the valve at the bottom of the injector opens, and the fuel shoots out, under pressure. The wire can be bad/chafed/corodded/ The electromagnet may be weak. The nozzle may be stuck. Lots of things. But, to put in an injector for a number 4 cylinder misfire (p-0304 code) would be one of the last things that I would do.

SOURCE: 1992 Chrysler LeBaron 3.0 L.

the owner probably rerouted the fuel line because like my 92 chrysler lebaron v6 3.0 the fuel lines keep seeming to come off and the clamps always break. I have replaced the clamps 5 times in a month and replaced filters 2 times in 2 months. The only thing i could think of is that your fuel is being cut off possibly because there is no filter to clean all the junk out. Try putting a fuel filter on and see if that will work

Best do a fuel pressure test. Should have chg. fuel filter from the get go. The only other filter is on the end of the fuel pump in tank. Bad gas and dirty gas will plug up fuel filter, hense burn pump up.

SOURCE: intermittant stalls & rough idle

You might have leaking injector(s) or injector O-ring(s). It could be leaking inside the fuel rail feeding fuel constantly. The pressure could be OK because the computer compensates by working the fuel pump harder in order to keep pressure within specs. I have a similar problem in my 99 Outback, it rough idles at stops intermittently. I recreated the problem, I checked it in my back yard, turned it on, let it warm up. Then I put it in gear went forward stopping and going with the e-brake until it rough idled. I got out put some bricks in front of the tires and started checking around. I noticed when it rough idles the transmission makes a constant sound. I would describe it as a fast ticking, sounds electronic. I tried messing with the idle by adjusting the TPS. I noticed that when I set the TPS to where there was little or no signal coming from it the sound would stop and the idle would be normal. I haven't had time to check it again but I don't know what to think of it.

Car will start sometimes other times i will have to continue to crank the engine it cranks everytime

As it cranks, is there white or black exhaust smoke ?? If yes, the fuel injectors have solid build up on the tips. Normally, a quart bottle of injector cleaner treats 20 gallons. Pour 5 to 7 quarts of fuel injector cleaner. With cold engine (been parked for at least an hour or overnight), while cranking engine, have 2nd person spray starting fluid into air filter. DO NOT PRESS ON GAS PEDAL !!! Let the starting fluid do its job of starting the car. Starting fluid is highly combustible, so its important you don't give any gas while its cranking and 2nd person is spraying into air filter. When engine starts, stop spraying starting fluid and give a little gas. If engine begins to die, immediately spray a little starting fluid again. When engine begins to run, let it run a few minutes to let fuel injector cleaner to do its job (loosen solid carbon build up on tips of fuel injectors).

I have a 2002 Harley Davidson Fatboy and I put gas in at a different gas station and now it is missing when I ride. Would changing the fuel filter help and if yes how do I go about doing that.

Well we all know what that HD stands for(HUNDRED DOLLARS) LOL. I am assuming your bike is carburated as after 02 most went to injection. Your fuel filter is part of the intake line to your carb. You may have to remove the tank to get to it. Most harley filters are a heat temperd glass bulb with a filter inside. You said you got gas from a diffrent station,and there could be water in it. Upon inspection of your filter it will be deffinitly noticeable if there is water or moisture in your tank and or filter. I would reccomend getting a new fuel filter and plugs,and along with a bottle of harleys best carb cleaner or moisture remover.Get your self some fresh gas(HIGH OCTAIN) will work best for removing moisture. Drain your tank by removing your fuel line connected to the petcock.After empty remove cap and dump any remaining BS that may be in there. Used compressed air to blow the tank out then let it sit for a few hours to dry out any moisture, Reinstall everything and give it a hell of a ride down the highway. Hope this helps. P.s you may need carb adjustment and new air filter as well.

Slight rough idle in park warm or cold after warmed up a lot rougher at stop light but doesn't stall/ normal driving speed run great

seeing how the truck is an 88 there could be a few solutions that will not cost alot of money. I would try to add fuel injectior cleaner to your next full tank of gas as well has using a higher octane fuel or octane booster. Also try some heet. this takes some of the extra moisture out of the gas and should be added in a full tank as well. Some of the Lucas brand injector cleaner will remove moisture. If there is any knocking in the motor, on your next oil change put in a bottle of Lucas oil treatment or something I use called Hyper-Lube. They both are only 1 quart bottles so you will short the amout of oil put in the engine by 1 quart. When the truck is sitting overnight or for a few hours especially in a cool environment the oil will get thick, when the truck warms up the oil thins and you notice problems like what you described. I live in Indiana and the winter here can be a bit rough on a car/truck. If additives don't solve the problem then you will have to look into the possibility that there is a mechanical/electrical component that is bad. They can be:
throttle position sensor
dead fuel injector
lose of compression in a cylinder
dirty fuel filter
dirty air filter
spark plugs
engine timing off
faulty spark plug wire/ wire being on the wrong plug causing firing order being wrong
since it runs fine at driving speed I would check into the fuel injector cleaner 1st. The injector or the throttle position sensor.

Have changed the fuel filter lately? You may moisture in the fuel, I suggest you change the fuel filter and add some fuel addatives to the gas tank. This will help to help get rid of the moisture and clean the injectors. The fuel filter requires special tools to remove the old one. If you are going to attempt this yourself make sure you let the truck sit with the ignition off for at least a half hour. That should be enough time to allow the fuel pressure to bleed down, or you can relieve the pressure at the fuel pressure test port. Keep that hot trouble light a good distance away too, you don't want cold gas hitting that hot bulb.

I have a 89 corvette with probally a fuel problem. I had day chevrolet replace the fuel injectors and filters and drove the car 500 miles which it ran fine. I then stored the car in the garage for a month....

the carbon build up is not important here. your intake probably has moisture built up from being stored and exposed to condensation. what i suggest is go to your local auto parts store and buy a bottle of K-100 fuel system cleaner and get a fresh tank of gas in it and put the alotted amount of cleaner and run it for a little while. if that does not work than you may have an ignition problem. the first thing that i would personally try is new plugs and plug wires.
